WA's Formidable Vegetable Sound System has become notorious across the globe for their dynamic live performances promoting sustainability and the joys of gardening through ukulele, horns and glitchy electroswing beats.
A hefty remix of tremendous air-punching danceability by Melbourne’s funkiest electro-wonk producer, Spoonbill (who has worked with the likes of Tipper and Opiuo). Pounding beats, gut-wrenching bass and glitchy eccentricities along with Charlie Mgee’s crusty, Tom Waitsy vocals drive the song’s permaculture message to the very margins of the conceivable.
